Illinois Compiled Statutes
Information maintained by the Legislative
Updating the database of the Illinois Compiled Statutes (ILCS) is an ongoing process.
Recent laws may not yet be included in the ILCS database, but they are found on this site as Public
soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the
Because the statute database is maintained primarily for legislative drafting purposes,
statutory changes are sometimes included in the statute database before they take effect.
If the source note at the end of a Section of the statutes includes a Public Act that has
not yet taken effect, the version of the law that is currently in effect may have already
been removed from the database and you should refer to that Public Act to see the changes
made to the current law.

Notwithstanding the foregoing, a corporation whose
fiscal year ends within the 2 months immediately preceding its anniversary month may not elect an extended filing month.
(b) The statement of election shall be accompanied by an interim annual

included in the annual report except that the information required by
subparagraph (h) of Section 14.05 shall be the amounts represented in this
State as disclosed by the preceding annual report or if no annual report is
on file, from information contained in the articles of incorporation of a
domestic corporation or the application for certificate of authority in the
case of a foreign corporation.

this Section, together with all fees, taxes and charges as prescribed by

prior to the first day of the anniversary month of the corporation such
statement of election and interim annual report together with all fees,
taxes and charges as prescribed by this Act, were deposited in the United
States mail in a sealed envelope, properly addressed, with postage prepaid,

State finds that such statement and reports conform to the requirements of
this Act, he or she shall file the same. If he or she finds that they do
not so conform, he or she shall promptly return the same to the corporation
for any necessary corrections, in which event the penalties hereinafter
prescribed for failure to file such report within the time hereinabove
provided shall not apply if such statement, if applicable, and report are
corrected to conform to the requirements of this Act and returned to the
Secretary of State within 30 days of the date the report was returned for

information required by Section 14.05, and must pay the appropriate fees
and franchise taxes due, if any, or set forth the amount of any overpayment
to be credited against any other taxes applicable under this Act which may
thereafter be payable, in each case based on any difference which may exist
between its interim annual report and its final transition annual report.
